We Finally Know If Ryan Bingham Will Return For Yellowstone Season 5

For the past four seasons, Grammy Award-winning singer Ryan Bingham has been doing his thing on Paramount's "Yellowstone," with his guitar-sporting ex-con Walker becoming a full-fledged secondary character on the Western family drama. As fans get ready for the release of Season 5, many are hoping and wondering if showrunner Taylor Sheridan will continue to let the country star appear in the popular series after initially only wanting him to come on to do some songs.

"I have watched all 4 seasons of Yellowstone in the last week. I was already a fan of [Ryan Bingham's] music, now I love your acting too," tweeted one viewer in January 2022. "Hope your role continues in Season 5."

According to Sheridan, Bingham's role on "Yellowstone" has lasted as long as it has because he's managed to take his early advice, which was simply to not "suck." Luckily for everyone involved, the New Mexico native has developed some pretty serious skills in the ranching and riding department. However, that can only get you so far in Hollywood nowadays. With Season 5 of "Yellowstone" expected to drop in the fall, it's time to start asking the question of whether Bingham will officially be brought back once again after repeatedly extending his time on the show.

Ryan Bingham's Walker to officially appear in Season 5

According to Bingham, the singer-songwriter will indeed be coming back for the fifth season of "Yellowstone" to play his loner Walker, though it's still unclear exactly what he will be doing in the long run.

"You're on a need-to-know basis, for sure," he told the Los Angeles Times in a recent interview. "Sometimes you'll hear from another cast member that they'll be back, so you got an idea of when they're telling us," Bingham explained. "I got the call recently and they said that they were going to start back up."

While details of Walker's Season 5 appearances are still under wraps, Bingham knows one thing for certain — fans can expect more of Taylor Sheridan's classic, "Yellowstone" cowboy style. "There really haven't been many shows that portray the modern West," Bingham told the LA Times. "I think there's still a lot of romanticism left in the world about that cowboy way of life." As of right now, Season 5 of "Yellowstone" is expected to start streaming in November, as it did last year.
